Hey, Is anyone considering riding the Roaming rally this year? Has anyone done this? Any comments?
Yes and yes. It's out-F$&KING-standing good fun. Do it, you won't regret it
Agreed. Done it twice - great adventure if you can free the time.
Lots and lots of water crossings and mud, and long days if you can finish the routes!
And a ton of good fun in the evenings
Alon, how can you ride the next day after a ton of fun evening?
Do you go there the night b4 and where do you stay?
I go there on the Thursday afternoon and in the past there were camping or cabin options. This year it's being hosted on the organizer's (Ted) property for tents. Best bet is to check all the details on www.graveltravel.ca
Also, check out this long thread for more info:
Might be interested in doing the Roaming Rally this year if anyone needs a team mate. I understand they have an "Expert" route this year too. Claim only a 10% completion number for this route. I would love to be that 10%
I am considering Kevin but i am no expert. this will be my first time.
You'll be an expert when it's over...don't hesitate if you have the interest to go. It's a great time.
I'd be interested in the Roaming Rally as well, but don't have a team. I'd be interested in the main route, no hero option for me
I wish there was an event like this for solo riders.
That's fine. So far you can link up with rorider and i am sure you will find another. I will be attending and i have been informed by Ted that you will be teamed up at the event. If you are interested, pm me and i will guide you through it all.
Thanks for the offer, I really do appreciate it, but I am looking for something like this to do solo. Every event you need a team, and I have done that before, (Dacre 3 times now), just looking for a multi day solo adventure. I get why they want you to have a team, but just wish there was a solo format.
You could always sign up, get the GPS tracks (or ask someone for them), and just figure out your own places to stay. Then you can do it whenever you want.
Dakar - start saving now
I will do Dakar on my KLR lol. Who is in?
